I have two 1T drives on an old IBM server. I am having a number of issues with the system. I will provide a full detail post on the issues and system if there will be anyone able to respond to this post.
Ok here is the system. It is a old IBM Netfinity 5000 with 1G of ram and two 550 mhz PIII. The OS is XP with SP3. I do not have very many programs loaded on the system just enough to just watching DVDs. Along with the IDE-DVD player there is a XFX GF (GeForce) FX 5200 PCI video card. The SCSI raid system was pulled out and replaced with a PNY (Netcell) SPU5103 5-port 32-bit PCI controller card with two Samsung 1T drives both set up as raid 0 on separate logical arrays. I flashed the controller card with a newer firm ware from v184.108.40.206 to v220.127.116.11. I tried v18.104.22.168. (which I would prefer) but after flashing the system would lock up right after the Netcell menu during boot-up. Next post will be the system issues.
Issue #1: Every time I boot (and I do mean every time) the second drive (port 1, logic array A1) switches to logic array A2. The system will continue to boot and after the OS boots the storage manager fixes (I assume) the logic array back to A1 because by the time I can start up the storage manager the second drive is on A1. This would not seem like much of a problem, but the system appears to lock up after an hour or so of running if I do not fix the array during the boot. Issue #2 will have to wait untill tomorrow.
